All hail your benevolent parody overlord.

Weird Al Yankovic exists in a one-of-a-kind pop music world of his own creation. What other performer can provide both kids and their parents with legitimately equal levels of glee? What other artist could record new songs and score their first #1 album on the Billboard charts more than 30 years after their debut? What other musician can seamless bring together the music of Lorde, Pixies, Iggy Azalea, Cat Stevens, marching bands, and more on a single record? In case you haven't figured it out yet, the answer to all those questions is "no one."

After his new album Mandatory Fun became a smash success last year (including a week where he owned the Internet with music video premieres), Weird Al is finally ready to take the new parodies on the road. As part of his massive world tour (88 dates and counting), Werid Al heads to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup on Monday, September 14. Tickets go on sale this Friday. If you've never seen Weird Al live, it's not merely a concert — it's a production: video screens, costume changes, a band that can play any style, and plenty of joyful comedic weirdness.

Tickets for Weird Al Yankovic at the Washington State Fair cost $30–$60 and go on sale to the general public on Friday, January 30 at 10am via
